About 50% of canines will die from cancers.
They die at about the same rate as humans, soon to be 50%. The only reason more humans don't die from cancers is because many die from heart disease or diabetes first.
Dogs and humans get cancers for the exact same reasons, toxins in the air, food, and water, along with vitamin and mineral deficiency. Most people feed their dog cheap food, containing mostly corn and gluten, with very few vitamins and minerals. Throw in some vaccinations, especially the rabies jab, and you have the perfect formula for a short life.
And just like humans, dogs are getting cancer earlier, mostly before the age of 7. However, unlike humans, canines are meat-eaters, and were not meant to survive on yellow corn, animal by-products, and artificial colors/preservatives.
